: Use high-interest visual narratives to make your word study come alive for students! Fifteen short mini-comics provide the engaging framework for illustrating the meanings of words and word parts in context for students in grades five and up. And research shows that these high-interest visual narratives are especially motivating for ELL and reluctant readers in all grades, too. The comics in Super-Powered Word Study become the springboard for stimulating games and activities that allow students to interact with roots, suffixes, and affixes. All of the weekly word study explorations engage students to think about language, consider word formation, improve reading fluency, and create their own stories. This innovative book/DVD resource offers: A highly interactive approach to word study, complete with games, activities, and practice assessments; Prompts and optional extension activities for additional opportunities for creative writing and language exploration; An interactive software program for projectors, whiteboards, and student computers supporting the lessons and enabling students to create their own comics; and Easy-to-use, reproducible PDF files of the comics, riddle cards, word sorts, student notebook pages, sample comics scripts, and comics templates. Add this flexible, multi-platform tool to your word study toolkit, and super-power your word study instruction!
